Where is the best place to go to buy blinds for a home. I have probably 40 windows that I need to cover in my home.

Advice?

Pricing on blinds is all pretty competitive. Home Expo probably offers the biggest selection but we looked at several different places and the prices were all very close for the same product. Of course, you can find on-line sources as well, but then you are responsible for doing all of the measuring yourself (every window in our 25 year old house was slightly different - maybe a new home is more consistent). We ended up ordering from a local wallpaper store who would come out and measure and install for free - Wallpaper Plus on Roswell Rd.

Can't go wrong with Loews! I ordered my blinds from there and so far so good.

If they're not custom sizes and you just want cheapie ones
Home Depot has a good selection.
I bought mini blinds for my kids bedrooms for $3.97 a window

40 windows! Here is a good southern saying, "bless your heart"! I don't know what side of town you are on, but try Budget Blinds. They travel the metro area pretty extensively. The service is wonderful. I don't have the phone number on hand, but they have a Canton address. I think they are on Hwy 20 (not I-20).

Home Depot and Lowes can cut a lot of their blinds for you.

40 windows is quite a lot....lemme think how manny I got....hmm...I know my half of the duplex has 22 windows...and if I guess for my tenant's half I think she probably has 19...

So, I'm FEELING you on this!

Luckily, I don't care about covering up the kitchen, pantry, and butler's pantry windows. The living and dining and office I got my mom to sew curtains. And we bought cheapo blinds for the bath, my son's room, and our bedroom.

Is your house old? I notice older homes have a lot of windows because back in the day they didn't use a lot of electric light (if at all!).

Oh, for our office and my son's room we got our window coverings at IKEA. Good prices on hardware there, too.

We great deal on our blinds through JC Penny during a sale and they installed them for us, but there was a sale going on, so I don't know if it's still a great deal.

I second the motion for JC Penney. They have half-price sales and that's when I'd buy them if you don't need them right away.

Default blinds

Blinds are a big purchase.Uv inhibitors are a big deal! Most blinds that You find at a home improvment store only have one hundered hours of uv blockage.The highest level is 500 hours.The hour rating refers to the amount of consatant direct sun light it can handle.Buying any product with less than five hundered hours of protection results in warped yellow blinds.Two to three years later.No manufacture in the industry covers warpage or yellowing.It is a exclusitionon every warranty.I measure and install products with 500 hours of uv protection to serve my customers well.And to prevent warranty return vists 3 or 4 years later.
